Today was the first day of the winter junior college signing period in college football. According to NewsOK.com on Dec. 28, the Oklahoma Sooners made quick work in signing two JuCo athletes to letters of intent, which means they can start school in the Spring semester and be available for the annual Red-White game.
The two players that OU signed to their football team were linebacker Devante Bond (6-3, 240) and tight end Isaac Ijalana (6-5, 235). The Sooners also hope to sign offensive tackle Sebastian Tretola, who is still deciding between Oklahoma, Arkansas and TCU.
Bond, who played junior college ball for Sierra Community College in Roseville, Calif. Bond committed to OU last month. He originally planned to attend Miami, but did not make it in because of grades. He worked on fixing those in junior college and will attend OU instead.
Bond is a three-star recruit and heads to an OU team who is looking to replace Corey Nelson. An outside linebacker, he will likely come in to provide depth behind Dominique Alexander.
Ijalana has committed to OU on two different occasions. The first time, his commitment was recalled because he wanted to make sure a specific class would transfer to OU, which could have kept him from starting school in January.
Ijalana played junior college ball for Pierce Community College and is a three-star recruit. With the Sooners possessing no depth at the tight end position, he will compete for a starting job as soon as he steps on campus.
